Who were the first Americans? Where did they come from? When did they arrive? In this dramatic reconstruction of the daily lives of the earliest Americans, leading anthropologist Kenneth Tankersley tackles those questions, explaining how people survived the Ice Age and forever altered the course of human history. Drawing on more than two decades of fieldwork around the world, Tankersley takes readers on an exciting journey into American’s most ancient human past—from the deep recesses of underground caverns in the east to the mountains and deserts of the West—providing a behind-the-scenes look at the search, discovery, and examination of Ice Age sites and artifacts. Based on the author’s unique mix of archaeology, anthropology, and history, In Search of Ice Age Americans provides the most current theories and answers to the fundamental questions of our past. This is the first book to tell the real stories behind America’s most important archaeological discoveries by those who made them.
